What you'll do

NO ART EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED... This is an intuitively driven, intimate, private, 1-4 person experience that starts at 10 am and lasts 4 hrs. It’s best to plan downtime after the session to integrate. The art studio is a sacred space and located upstairs in the HeART House. You will be shown how to set up your own sacred space for your inner artist to come out and play. There is evidence that engagement with artistic activities can enhance your mood, emotions, and other psychological states while reducing symptoms like stress and depression. You will be taught the intuitive painting process and be guided into a creative visualization to release your inner critic before painting. The paints are infused with Reiki energy. Reiki promotes healing by activating the relaxation response and helps the body to balance itself from a very deep level. It is important to work on the painting for 2-3 hours, but mostly until the process feels complete to you. You will learn how to incorporate the practice at home for deep self-healing and be shown how it can benefit your life moving forward. Trusting your inner voice can transform your life in beautiful ways. Physical exercise primes our brains for heightened creativity. If you're up to it, we can take a brisk walk to the beach and back before diving deep into the painting. Tarot reading included, upon request.

Meet your host, Crista

  • Identity verified
Crista enjoyed over 20 years of creativity as a lead graphic designer for a large marketing firm. She made her way up the ladder of success but yearned for an outlet where she could pursue her first love, painting. While she will always look back fondly on her schooling, earning several college degrees. She knew that by going back to what originally motivated her, she could design a personalized experience that would be transformative to all who took part. She trained tirelessly to obtain the rank of Reiki Master and has worked to become certified in Healing with the Arts. The combination of the arts and exercise, when taken in the proper doses is pure alchemy. There are valid studies that prove this to be true. Science is finally catching up to what ancients have known all along. The household is fully vaccinated.

Where you'll be

Our backyard is a Certified Wildlife Habitat and extremely peaceful. The Healing with HeART class is upstairs in a historical home built in 1923. Gulfport is a little beach town with a big heart. Popular for year-round events and an eclectic ambiance. The Market offers a variety of independent shops, boutiques, galleries, its own beach and amazing restaurants. It’s a small town with an ‘Old Florida’ charm.

The experience was more than expected. Crista was welcoming and personalable. The garden walk was enjoyable and relaxing. If you are looking to paint a canvas that includes intuition this is for you. The skills offered will continue long after the class.

My experience with Crista was transformative. I connected with her on a deep level, and I loved how much flexibility there was for me to co-create the most healing experience for myself. I learned new things about myself and left with a sense of peace, and also pride in how far I've come on my own healing journey. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts, Crista, and for helping me embrace my own in a new way.

Crista’s process for preparing me to create my healing art was an unexpected personal journey. All I can say is that the experience was deeply meaningful for me. The resulting painting is still pretty amateurish, but it will hang in my home as both a memory and an inspiration!

Krista was warm, welcoming and had a genuine concern that I not only enjoyed my experience but that it was especially relevant to me. She facilitated not only the act of painting but my creative potential. I was impressed how intuitive she was with her card reading & her selection of my healing stone/mineral.

Great intuitive experience; allowed me to paint with my inner critic at bay. The last I could remember painting was in third grade; so I had no painting skills, and yet it was enlightening to me what ended up on the pallet. I feel a lot of confidence in Crista and from the deep place from which she comes; she has earned her "stripes" in learning how to heal with painting. Great communication skills, two lovely dogs, all surrounded in nature, a tarot reading--all added to the experience.

I booked this for my mother and I, as knowing my mother would probably get more out of this then I would. But I was wrong, Christa was warm, inviting, very deeply connected with herself and helped you find your own spiritual journey with in. I was very impressed and left feeling peaceful (until my mother flipped a car off after leaving!!) Overall this was a great experience and I would highly recommend if your looking to find or learn how to be creative and learn the process of how to find inner peace. Christa also gives you the tools you need to continue and offers aftercare support....very genuine, which you don't find too much of these days.
